Aww, look at them gazing into each each other’s eyes!
Here is the Certificate of Marriage from the Bride’s Book.
And here’s the ‘real’ marriage certificate.
I remember when I sent away to Fresno for this marriage certificate and received a “no record found” response. Huh? I asked Mom about it and she was just as confused as I was. Why was there no marriage certificate? Did the official ‘forget’ to turn it in? Finally it occurred to me – they must have applied for their marriage license in another county. So I asked Mom again and she thought for a minute and said “oh yes, we must have applied for our license in San Mateo County since we were at Stanford at the time”. Sure enough, that’s where it was. Phew, I was beginning to worry that my parents’ marriage was not legal.
What a beautiful cake! I wonder if they smashed it in each other’s face.
I’m somewhat surprised that we didn’t find those bells lying around Mom’s house somewhere. :-)
